mind you though, you need to be logged in to see the Photo's

after visiting the real thing in Maassluis, and seeing the model at an open day, my wife fell in love with it.
yes i have a wife that actually enjoys sailing her model at competitions, is this a rare thing or what?

i enjoyed the build, hope you all like the Photo's

Hi Barry,

i have a total of 175 Photo's which were taken during the Build.

plus 30 Photo's of the Original Furie, mored outside the steam museum in Holland.

My Model of the Furie has a 6 volt 4amp Gell Batterer in her, Rx is from Graupner a R700 the speedcontroler i have changed to a Rokraft100E, test drives were with the Graupner Navy40, the motor is from Buehler, does about 5000Rpm and about 30W of power
max drain is about 1 amp, the servo is a Flat Servo, the same size as a normal servo but only half the hight.

so heres a couple of photo's on the inside, before the decks were fitted

i forgot to mention: Scale 1/48 Length 698mm Beam 140mm
